NST: erratic or unresponsive touch-screen (and it's not caused by dirt)
I decided to post in here after doing extensive research online but having found no answer to my problem....
I have had a rooted (with NookManager) Nook Simple Touch that worked perfectly until I went travelling across tropical countries. Since then, I have seen a progressive degradation of the touchscreen, specifically I noted the following:
- Buttons/icons in the lower half of the screen, when tapped, do no respond. Instead, buttons/icons directly above them (on the upper part of the screen) do respond to the action.
- When the keyboard is active and letters are tapped, you get one of these random behaviours:
- the letter appears on the screen, but 2 or 3 of them, even if the letter is tapped once.
- the letter above the one tapped, appears on screen: e.g. I press "q" and "a" appears on screen; I press "backspace" and the letter "p" appears on screen.
Following the recommendations of many forums, I cleaned thoroughly my screen, however this does not seem to resolve the problem. I also performed a factory reset and re-root, still the problem persists (though, after a new factory reset, the erratic behaviour is less frequent, at start, but then It worsens as time goes by).
The only thing that changed is the fact that I am now travelling in hotter countries and maybe the Nook is sensitive to temperatures constantly above 30C. so I suspect it may be the cause.
Has anyone experienced similar problems?
